About the Commission
The Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission was formed statutorily by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the State of New Jersey in 1934 and Congress ratified the arrangement under the Compact Clause of US Constitution in August 1935. The agency operates eight toll bridges and 12 toll-supported bridges, two of which are pedestrian-only spans. The Commission is a self-supporting public-service agency that receives no federal nor state tax dollars to finance its projects or operations. Funding for the operations, maintenance and upkeep of its related transportation facilities is derived from revenues collected at its toll bridges. The Commission’s jurisdiction extends along the Delaware River from the Philadelphia-Bucks County line north to the New Jersey/New York border. More than 125.2 million cars and trucks crossed Commission bridges in 2021. For more information, please go to: www.drjtbc.org.
